Apple slashes commission fees to developers on its App Store
Apple is halving the commission it takes from the sale of apps and virtual goods sold within them from many of the smaller developers using its stores. Apple has characterised the move as being a natural evolution of its policies, which it had made after listening to feedback from its developer communities. About 28 million developers use Apple's store, and the firm says the vast majority of those who charge fees will benefit. At present, the only way for developers to offer native apps - rather than those that run via a web browser - for iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and the Apple TV set-top box is via the firm's App Store. The company won't tell us what proportion of its App Store revenue comes from developers earning more than $1m who will continue to pay a 30% commission.
